Michael Winston is a prominent executive in the field of organization management, and is also a rarity among corporate whistle-blowers. A former executive at Countrywide Financial, he spent three years in a legal battle with the once-mighty mortgage giant, and its current owner, Bank of America. He contended that he was punished and pushed out for not toeing the company line, and in February 2011, a California jury agreed and awarded him damages, thus proving that the company was not above the law. With thirty years of cutting-edge experience as a business leader, change agent, and organization strategist, he has spent his career preparing organizations to meet the challenges of rapid, continuous and disruptive market change and to capitalize on the resulting opportunities. He is dedicating his life to promoting vision-driven, values-based leadership that is a force for good, not evil. Finally, he wants to rid the world of companies that abuse shareholders, customers, employees and society.
